Resonance Structures

Postby Nancy 1B » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:44 pm

Does anyone know if we will have to draw all the resonance structures of a molecule and if we have to draw the "average" of all of the resonance structures for test 2?

The question should indicate how many structures you will be required to draw. Typically, you should draw the most significant resonance structures. If you are asked to draw the resonance hybrid, then yes, you will need to draw the "average".
